    Folks (and not just Texans) - as you can see from the 3 Lori-meters on the front page of OpenCarry.org, we have noted what funding levels we need by what time t6o renew contracts.

    See:

    http://www.opencarry.org/billboard.html (CURRENT TOP PRIORITY - we need $40 more by 1 OCT 08!!

    http://www.opencarry.org/taxi.html

    http://www.opencarry.org/houston.html

    --

    The top priority right now is to raise the funds needed to extend the I-35 bill board contract for another month - we initially paid for 2four week periods, and have extended for one more and have the funds already - but to get another month and keep the billboard up into December, we need $725 more - if you have not yet donated any money yet, now would be the time, thanks!

    OC Billboard Lori is alive and well after IKE. Without power and a small leak in the ceiling.

    UPDATE on Sunday 28 SEP 08: Folks - we are still $475 short for the 1 OCT deadline to renew the I-35 bill board through the end of November. If you have not yet given for the Texas OC reights restoation fund, or if you have some extra cash to spare or just want to raise your status to Founder's Club members, please give accordingly today via http://www.opencarry.org/billboard.html.

    If I don't come back from Hong Kong alive . . . it is because my wife killed me.

    I don't get paid until the 3rd, but I suppose I can cough up another 100. Is there a Triple Founders Club Memebership?

    You do enough already, I'm on the other side of the world working on weapons, you're working on letting me carry mine comfortably when I get home. Thank YOU.

    I agree, PrayingForWar, they've done plenty. I just thank God that they are willing to do so much for us here in Texas. Especially consideringwhat they have to gain for the amount of time they'veput into it, which is very little.THANK YOU JOHN AND MIKE.

    All I could do now is $10.00. Not much, but a little. I live in Florida, but support the cause. Thx!

    Great! John will update your status when he confirms the donation. Just think, if all 9,000 or so OCDO members each gave $10 we would have nearly $100K to fight this battle!!

    John is about to update the Lori Meters - we still might need a few more $ for the I-35 bill board extension by tonight.

    Unfortunately I had to wait for a check to clear into my account, but my $10 has now been donated... Hopefully it isn't too late! I see the meter shows that we are only a few dollars away so hopefully it was covered and the meter just needs to be updated again!

    Mike, Just sent another $50

    Edit: Folks, we are going to have to do better than this if we expect these ads to survive through the legislative session. I know times are a little tough right now, but I think with a little better planning we can keep these ads up. You get what you pay for. Bottom line....If you ain'twilling to pay the price, then itain't gonnahappen. I thinkalmost anyoneshould be able togive about$5 a week to each ad campaign, but anything helps.

    The key is to pay attention to the funding deadlines on each Lori-meter.

    I was thinking that if everyone gave a little each week to each ad campaign, then there wouldn't be such a rush to get the money in. And it wouldn't hurt each person near as much come deadline time.
